Multi-coloured Glass-Glass Photovoltaic Module for Building Integration

  • S-P-01817 Image 1.jpg

Product information

This multi-coloured PV module is made of standard PV technology hidden behind a front glass, which is digitally printed with ceramic ink. Digital printing offers an unprecedented range of colours and patterns, which resulting electrical efficiency of the PV cell below is controlled by a patent filed method and Swiss registered trademark meta-c-print. Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) contribute to achieving an increase of electricity supply from PV solar electricity by fully utilising building surfaces, such as roof, skylights or façades to maximise electricity generation.

Multi-coloured glass-glass photovoltaic modules have about 10-40% lower electricity generation yield than clear glass PV modules. The product takes over the function of a glass façade element and therefore must fulfil one or more requirements of EN 5050383-1 such as mechanical rigidity or structural integrity, primary weather protection, energy economy,
fire protection etc. The service lifetime for this type of photovoltaic module is about 30 years.
